Evolutionary game theory, natural selection, and Darwinian dynamics

Author: Thomas L Vincent; Joel S Brown
Publisher: Cambridge ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 2005.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Many topics in natural selection are investigated including co-evolution, speciation, and extinction. It may be described as a book on mathematical Darwinism. Darwin used logical verbal arguments to understand evolution. These arguments are presented here in a mathematical setting useful for both understanding evolution and allowing for prediction as well.
